That didn’t last long. U.S. stocks pulled off a strong rebound yesterday, with the S&P 500 advancing 2.5% for its strongest showing since late May. However, persistent worries about inflation and a potential recession still remain a concern for investors, leading many to describe the rally as a “dead cat bounce.” Bear market blues quickly returned overnight, with the futures contracts linked to the S&P benchmark index falling 2%, meaning stocks have a very good chance of erasing all of Tuesday’s gains during today’s session.
